PRIVACY POLICY

 

RVezy Inc. (“RVezy,” “we”/”us”) is committed to protecting your privacy. We make the website, http://www.rvezy.com/ (the “Website”) available together with our services as further described in our Terms of Use  (the “Services”). This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, store, use and distribute information about our users through the Website and Services.

 

Consent: By using the Website or our Services you consent to the use of your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy. Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, your Personal Information will not be used for any other purpose without your consent. We will not actively collect Personal Information for the purpose of sale or marketing in a way that specifically identifies the individual. In other words, we don’t sell customer lists. You may withdraw your consent to our processing of your Personal Information at any time. However, withdrawing consent may result in your inability to continue using the Website and/or the Services.

 

Collection of Information: We aim to collect, use and disclose only such information as is required to enable us to manage your account, to provide the Services, to maintain our customer/visitor lists, to respond to your inquiries or provide feedback, for identification and authentication purposes, for service improvement, to process payments, and for insurance purposes. We will maintain the confidentiality of any contact information you provide to us on signing up for our Services or contacting us with questions or for further information and we will use it only for the purposes for which we have collected it (subject to the exclusions and disclosures we have listed below), unless you agree that we may disclose it to other third parties.

 

Two types of information may be collected through the Website and our Services: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information. This Privacy Policy does not extend to the collection, use or disclosure of the following information which is currently not limited by applicable privacy laws: (a) information that is publicly available, such as names, addresses, telephone numbers, and electronic address when listed in a directory or made available through directory assistance; or (b) Non-Personal Information (as defined further below).

 

"Personal Information" is personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, credit card information, banking information, vehicle identification number, driver’s licence number, birth date and gender. At the time of collection, we will clearly identify the information being collected and the purposes for which it will be used. It is always your choice whether or not to provide Personal Information but if you choose not to provide certain requested Personal Information, in some instances you may not be able to register to use the Website or be able to access and use the Website at all. In other instances, your choice not to provide certain other Personal Information may mean that you will not be able to use certain features of the Website.

 

We may collect Personal Information in respect of the Website through registration processes; communications with you; information downloads; service purchases; user support; and surveys. You can also register to join by logging into online accounts you may have with third party service providers (“TPA”) (e.g. Facebook and Google); each such account, a “Third Party Account”, via our Website as described below. As part of the functionality of the Website and Services, you may link your RVezy Account with Third Party Accounts by allowing RVezy to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to grant RVezy access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating RVezy to pay any fees or making RVezy subject to any usage limitations imposed by the applicable TPA. If you decide to register by allowing us to access your Third Party Account via our Website, we will obtain the Personal Information you have provided to the applicable TPA (such as your name, email address, profile picture, and/or other information you authorize RVezy to access by authorizing the TPA to provide such information) from your Third Party Accounts and use that information to create your RVezy Account and RVezy Account profile page. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, you understand that by granting us access to the Third Party Accounts, we will access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the TPA and authorized by you) the information in your Third Party Accounts so that it is available on and through your RVezy Account on the Website and Services. If there is information about your “friends” or people with whom you are associated in your Third Party Account, the information we obtain about those “friends” or people with whom you are associated, may also depend on the privacy settings such people have with the applicable TPA.

 

"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature, such as an Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), the domain used to access the Website, and the type and version of browser or operating system being used by visitors to the website. Aggregate information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g. average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors, what pages users access or visit, and average time spent on the Website is not considered Personal Information. Similarly, business contact information such as the name, title, business address, or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is not considered Personal Information. This information may be used in conjunction with Personal Information in order to provide our Services, such as when we use your IP address to establish your approximate location and give distance estimates.

 

Although the use of certain Non-Personal Information collected, used or disclosed through the Internet as described herein is not restricted (and to the extent that such is the case, the obligations under this Privacy Policy do not apply to such information), we provide information in this Privacy Policy about the collection of such information for the sake of transparency with respect to the operation of the Website. Such Non-Personal Information is collected or derived by us in the course of operating this Website. For example, our web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Information that is provided through your browser or stored in a cookie when you choose to visit the Website.

 

Use of Information: The Services can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of RVs (as defined in the Terms of use). Listings for such RVs are made available via the Services by Owners. Listings posted by Owners, ratings and reviews of Owners and Renters, and other Personal Information posted by Owners and Renters, are visible to any RVezy user.

 

We collect information for the following purposes:

 

  • Registration: The Website and our Services are intended for use by individuals aged twenty-five (25) and older. By using this Website, you represent that you are at least 25 years of age. Consequently, we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from individuals under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child under the age of 13 has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at hello@RVezy.com. If we become aware that an individual under 13 has provided us with any Personal Information, we will take steps to delete such information. To register for an account and use our Services you must provide certain Personal Information to us such as your full name, gender, phone number, driver’s licence number, insurance information, and email address. If you wish to register as an Owner, you will also need to disclose your vehicle identification number, specifics relating to your vehicle (such as how many people it holds or sleeps), and the address that the vehicle is located at. This registration information will generally not be made publicly available, with the exception of any pictures you choose to make public; the name or username you choose to identify yourself by; ratings/reviews of Owners and Renters; vehicle specifications, approximate price, availability, and location of an Owner’s vehicle. When a Renter and an Owner engage in a transaction, more information will be shared between the two parties as is necessary for us to provide the Services.

 

  • Payment Information: In order to use our Services, Renters and Owners are required to enter certain payment information. The information required varies depending on the type of user and their preferences:
    • Deposits and Rental Fees: Deposits and Rental Fees paid by the Renter can only be made through our payment processor, PayPal. Any payments made through PayPal are secure, and the Renter’s PayPal payment information and credentials are not stored on our servers.

All information collected in this way, with the exception of PayPal, is stored securely on our servers and will not be disclosed to anyone, except as outlined below in Important Exceptions.

 

  • Refunds: Refunds of deposit money or cancellation refunds to Renters are also made through PayPal refunded back onto the credit card on which the Deposit was paid by the Renter.

 

  • Messages and Reviews: As part of our Services we make a messaging system available so that our users can contact one another and organize transactions. Using the messaging system will not give other users access to your email address. We also require Owners and Renters to rate and review one another when a transaction has been completed. Any Personal Information that you give out through these means is outside of our control and is your responsibility. If another user gives out your Personal Information in a review, or you would like a review taken down for any other reason, please contact hello@rvezy.com and we will work with you to resolve the issue.
